HOW HAS COLOGENY HELPED YOU?
As an individual, COLOGENY has helped me to be more aware of the creative space in Ogun State, the opportunities out there for every creative, also the power of coming together to make things happen. COLOGENY has also instilled in me, a winning mentality.
HOW DO YOU THINK THE CREATIVE SPACE IN OGUN CAN GET BETTER?
If everyone can come together and see themselves as stakeholders, we can put this creative space on the map.
DO YOU THINK THAT CREATIVITY INVOLVES PUTTING YOUR HEART AND SOUL INTO YOUR WORK?
Creativity involves thinking, then producing. If you have ideas but don’t act on them, you are imaginative but not creative, and you can only succeed when you put your heart and energy to what you’ve conceived in your mind.
WHAT IN YOUR PERSONAL LIFE HAS INFLUENCED YOU TO CHOOSE YOUR CAREER?
WHAT DO YOU DO TO KEEP YOURSELF MOTIVATED AND INTERESTED IN YOUR WORK?
I’m always thinking about the impact, my work will make on my environment, and the world at large, it keeps me going. I’m purpose driven.
